"The Kryptonian" - Part 5

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Nicola Scott
Inker: Trevor Scott
Cover: Andy Kubert and Alex Sinclair

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    The rebooted Justice League series for the New 52 worked the traditional trope of having mighty heroes band together to overcome a foe or situation that none of them could dispose of alone. In comparison to the events of Earth 2, that story seems paint-by-numbers and almost childish. Taylor has definitely given new energy and purpose to the ensemble book, and their motivations for banding together. In Justice League #1-6, the heroes come together in the manner of a situation comedy and stay together for little reason other than proximity and script. The Earth 2 heroes, however, don't come together and still have yet to come together. The situation is so desperate and bleak, that becoming a unit is a hurdle in itself. Hawkgirl and Green Lantern are dealing with paradaemons, while the Flash handles Bedlam. Red Tornado entertains Brutaal, while the Batman, with Doctor Fate, need to retreat from the battle, and all the while, the decision of Val-Zod will decide the fate of the Earth. This is not a team, not even close, but it is team building, and done in such a manner that no one who reads Earth 2 will be satisfied with anything less ever again.

^Thirded! My *only* wish was that his name was Val-El (Hey, the Els can be a big family, ok? Smile )

I really, REALLY hope that Val-Zod stays around for a long, long time. I could really see myself reading an Earth-2 Superman comic with this Superman.
